"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.
That myth is more potent than history.
That dreams are more powerful than facts.
That hope always triumphs over experience.
That laughter is the only cure for grief.
And I believe that love is stronger than death."

Adreann's Royal Day

So, when I posted my Royal Weddings back in April Adreann wondered why she was not included.  I told Adreann, "Hey, you are not even married!"

June 11 my niece, Adreann, married her best friend, Darren.  She became a "Peters".  I knew she would marry him the very first time I met him ... they were soul mates to the very definition of the word! (soul mate:  ~ noun  ~ a person with whom one has a strong affinity). 

Here she is:

Another Royal Wedding come and gone!

Family Foto Friday on Saturday

Lately on TV they have been showing clips of people thanking those serving overseas, particularly Afghanistan, for keeping us safe.  I thought I would take a minute and thank my grandfather, Hypolite A. Hidalgo.  He served in France at Chateau Thierry (c. 1917-1918) during WWI.

Thank you Papa!
